Tbe city council hud a busy session
last night. Two deputations were
heard, the claim of Aid. McSorley
against the city for quarantine was
Bottled, a discussion of the conduct■ of
Kevelstoke school children ended In a
ilocisioii CO enforce the curfew bylaw,
n city solicitor was appointed and other matters were dealt with. Aid.
Tyrrell of Kamloops, who was pie
neat, on the Invitation ol the mayor
addressed tha council and invited its
members  tO   visit   Kamloops.
Aid. MoSorley gave a statement
regarding his bill for $1336 for expenses of quarantine, Mr. McSorley
had oliered to accept e)'J2li and tlu
city council had oliered him 8600 without prejudice.
Mr. McSorley said that he did not
think thut he had been dealt With
luirly by the council and he proposed
to show why. He was not attempting
to bold up the council. The medical
health ollicer ordered a quarantine on
February 21. It came as a surprise
to h.m, as be bud not been taken into the confidence of the council or of
the board of health. He submitted
freely, although he knew that he
would be a heavy loser in any case.
He had an overhead expense ol $14,-
t'Hi a year or $3'J a day. The medical
health ollicer told him that he would
I e paid at his regular rates for everyone under bis root. Mr. McSorley did
not think that he wus to blame 111
believing that this would be done as
he had the precedents in the case of
the City hotel and.Cowies restaurant
to guide him. He asked the doctor
about another man in an adjacent
house and the medical health officer
told him to supply the man ai 'i
charge the city lor him as a guest
Also, before going into quarantine,
one of thc members of the board of
health told bim tbat he thought that
be would be better to go into quarantine. He took tbe inference that he
would be paid for guests in tbe hotel.
Before the quarantine was over th?
board of health wrote a letter aayiug
that responsibility lay between i 01-
self and his guests and quoted clause
i'O of the Health Act. This was startling news to bim and he could not
see that the clause applied in lis
case. He tried to get in touch with
the chairman of the board of hea'ith,
but he would not come. The coui'il
tried to unload the cost upon 1 in
in spite of precedents and in
spite of the understanding with thc
medical health otbeer, and a member
of the board of health bad even dug
up an old bill of a year ago last
January with the sole purpose of defeating his claim.
He had not been dealt fairly witb
as one business man to another. He
had invested $60,000 in the city of
Revelstoke and employed IS to 2o
jiersons in norma'i times and bc was
a customer of the city to tbe extent
of $2,frC<l a year. No one coming to
the city and offering to do this would
receive the treatment he had experienced. The aldermen in their private
capacity would not deal with their
customers us they had with him. They
had entered into a contract witb
bim, closed his plant and made a
quarantine station of the hotel. The
potlice brought a man into the hotel
a duy after tbe quarantine had been
declared and told him to bring in
bis family. He had put in his I ill as
instructed and expected fair dealing.
To obtain a peaceable settlement he
had thrown $400 oR his bill, He regarded his hil'l as recompense for
part of what he bad lost, but not
nearly all. Tbc city was morally
bound to live up to the agreement
made by the medical health ollicer.
In disputing his claim they were
playing to the gallery.
If the council hud not used his
hotel they would have been obliged to
prepare special] quarantine quartets
nt a cost vastly 111 'ir.' than bis
charge. Mr. Drown was tbe only one
who had paid him for hoard during
quarantine, His table board rate waa
MO a month and his regular rate for
four of the guests at the time would
have been ? 1.50 a day. He prope.se .1
if thc council could not settle tbe
matter, that it should appoint one
arbitrator, himself one. and these t
select -i third.
After a  lehgthy    discussion     Aid.
Smyth" seconded l,y API. Masson moved ihat Mr. McSorley be oflered S^W.
The motion carried, Aid. Hi mini' voting nay. Mr. McSorley intimated thnt
the offer would be aefcepted.

and morals of some ol the school

Aid. Hell thought that the High

The mayor thought C inditlotie were
thoroughly bad. He s:e,. e ofthe way
a child had deliberately broken a tree
on the boulevard after being wam<ed
not to do so by a ratepayer.
Aid McSorley thought that Revel-
rtoke had a good lot ol bo.vs but
that discipline should be enforced. He
thought that tie school board should
tuke up the matter with the, t?achers.
The m,,ver Bald :t had done so but
the teachers detied the schi.e.l bourJ.
Aid. McSorley thought tint the
question of monitors waa ditlercut
and Aid. Bourne inl not think that
it was necessary for children to stand

Toronto mining brokers predict another big boom in tbeir shares in tbe

since thc early days ol the cump. lt
might iilso<) be said of tbe N'ew Hazelton district that real prospects were
never brighter than at the present
time. The working ot«.the Rocher De-

planned will cause a stir on that eide
cf the district. It is a good safe bet
that the silver-lead side will give a
good report of itself this Beason.

Many people think there is. A greut

fo prolific a source ol mining prognostication as thc Rossland district
affords hope there ia. The question is
answered in the Engineering and Mining Journal, New York aB follows:
"When speculative persons are making money they are eager to Aake
sporting chances, which often result
in making mines and anyway, pro
duce activity in the mining industry.
We think that now we are just beginning to discern renewed interests in
mining. The temper of our people has
become optimistic."

SATURDAY,  MAY   I, 1915.
The appointment by the Dominion
government ol a purchasing commission to take control of the buying ot
all military supplies follows the
Uritish precedent, and is a guarantee
that for tbc future the purchase of
supplies in Canada will be. on a
thoroughly business lite basis.
Tha personnel of the commission inspires respect and confidence. Hon. A.
E. Kemp, the chairman, is a minister
without portfolio in the llorden administration, has hnd wide experience
in commercial life and was president
of the Canadian Manufacturers association. His colleagues are Mr. H.
Laporte of Montreal and Mr. G. F.
Gait. Both are men of the highest reputation and prominent in the commercial life of tbc Dominion. Mr.
Laporte has been mayor of Montreal
and one of the most prominent foes
of corruption in that city and is at
the head of a large commercial undertaking. Mr. Gait is one of the most
successful business men oi tbe west
and a director of the Canadian Bank
of Commerce and of other great linancial  institutions.
On tbe day on  which tbe   appoint
ment     of     the    commission  was an
nounced the news also became public
that Mr. a. Hewitt     Foster,    whose
name  was  associated   with  the     unbusinesslike  methods  by   which horses
were purchased in  Nova  Scotia     lor
the military service,  bad  resigned his
seat as member of the Hous     r C   m
mons, his action  being  the  -1

Sir Robert Borden's action
fail to have a healthy Influence upon
the public life of Canada. It is too
much to e\pect that, attempts at
rratt will havc been eliminated from
public affairs, but it is now known
that the shield of thc govern meat,
will never protect those guftty of
questionable dealings, that graft is
condemned     and   punished      by      tbe
The opposition of the Liberal press
to the act which permits soldiers on
active service with the Canadian contingents to exercise their franchise in
the event of a general election occurring in Canada before the con-
ilusion of thc war  is significant.
All kinds ol imaginary obstacles to
the recording of soldier's votes are
suggested, but these arguments as to
the extreme difficulty of permitting
soldiers on active service to -vote nre
discounted by the fact that on previous occasions the votes ol soldiers
at thc front have been recorded unite
satisfactorily. New Zealand provided
foil taking a vote of her volunteers on
active service, and what New Zealand accomplished should not be beyond the power of Canada. During
the civil war in the United States the
votes ol troops in the northern army
were polled, and President Abraham
Lincoln was elected in 1864 largely by
the votes of soldiers, some of whom
were actually  in the tiring line.
The real objection on thc part of
the Liberal press to thc plan for allowing Canadian soldiers on active
service to exercise their franchise is
founded, not on any genuine belief
that insuperable impediments to the
recording of the votCB exists, but on
tho conviction that, the majority ol
the Canadian troops will vote lor the
return of the Borden government.
Evidently the Liberal leaders understand that thc soldiers at the front
havc warm appreciation ol the manner in which the Borden government
bas expressed the sentiments ol Canada, and of the efficiency it has displayed in equipping, training and
despatching the Canadian contingents
If the Liberals believed that their
attacks on the government's military
administration had the sympathy of
thos.' most concerned, or if they be-
In veil thai those who are inspired
With the keen patriotism tbat has
induced them to volunteer for active
service would prefer at the present
time a Liberal administration to that
at present In power, they would bc
loud in their demands that the iold
ier Bhould not be deprived of his
franchise, Instead of being, u .it
present, hostile to the measure which
- the Canadian soldier abroad
t     ree.ird  hi-   Vi I       " me   when he
ird  'he right to vote
as  unusually   pree-
road equal to that of last year and
work on thc road construction will
be continued this summer.
A resolution was passed at a public meeting in Toronto protesting
against the holding ol a. general ejection while the war is in progress. The
Toronto resolution contains the very
important statement that the avoiding ol the election "Involves on thc
part ol the opposition a lricndly cooperation in the present crisis." So
long as this friendly oo-opcration was
given there was no justification for a
contest. But never has an administration been shown less consideration or
been more vindictively harassed than
during the session of parliament just
1,assed. The recent attitude ol the
Liberal leaders has altered the situation entirely.
The Review attributes to thc Mail-
Herald tho statement:
"One ol the reasons that graft has
flourished so much in Canada is that
there bas not been enough done by
the party leaders to put it down."
Continuing the Review Bays:
"The M.H. states in one line that
graft has 'flourished' and then in almost the Bame breath Btates that
"there has not been enough done."
We do not mind good pork, but have
no love Ior a hog. Will thc mouthpiece of thc above organ explain thc
meaning of the word "flourish," or
shall  we do it lor him."
The Review should address its remarks not to the Mail Herald but to
a respected leader ol its party, Hon.
Joseph Martin, for tbe sentence on
which it bases its highly logical observations was not originated by the
Mail Herald, but is a Quotation, Irom
an editorial in the Vancouver Evening
Journal, edited by Mr. Martin.

considerable Canadian lumber, one
British Columbia company reporting
that it has been asked to Bupply suf-
licicnt material to take care of ItB cut

Edmonton Journal: Mr. Oliver and
his newspaper try to make it appear
that thcre was nothing wrong iu thc
subscription of $16,000 Bulletin stock
by the Grand Trunk Pacific railway.
This was not always thc answer ol
tho Bulletin to the charge that it
was under obligations to the railway corporation, The stock was sub-
soribed ln 11105. On November 15,
1000, the lollowing appeared on tho
Bulletin editorial page:
'A speaker on Friday evening ventured the foolish suggestion that the
Bulletin is an "organ" Ior the Interests of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
which The Journal was indiscreet
enough to label an exposition of the
"Bulletin's connection with the Grand
Trunk  Pacific."
'The insinuation is, of course, without foundation. The Grand Trunk
Pacilic has no linancial interest in the
Bulletin and never has bad. Neither
haB it any control over tho Bulletin,
direct or indirect, nor inns it ever bad.
Neither has it ever nttempted to influence thc Bulletin's course on any
matter, in any way, shape or lorm,
through any official or any man.'
An explanation of how this statement can be reconciled with the facts
brought out in the recent report will
now be eagerly awaited.

Outline of Work at San Francisco Fair to Advertise
British Columbia
While the many visitors to the
Panama-Pacific exposition are loud in
their praises of the British Columbia
exhibits in the Canadian Pacilic railway building, very little of an official
nature has been received from San
Francisco regarding tho success and
■efficiency Ol the display. In response
to a request made several dayB ago,
W.E. Scott, deputy minister of agri-'
culture, luiB received from Mr. Perry,
the otlicial correspondent, an interesting communication dealing with the
mattei   in a comprehensive manner.
According to Mr. Perry, British Columbia's exhibit will be prominently
featured in moving pictures. A week
ago the lirst run of films of the dedication ot the Canadian building and
the Canadian Pacific railway pavilion
were shown in tbe lecture room of
the latter building. W.A. Lang, British Columbia's exhibition commissioner, presenting and explaining
them to a large audience.
Later thee tlltns, together with
otheis of the Panama Pacific exposition, will be sent all over the continent by the exhibition management,
as many as io duplicates being sent
cut to advertise the attractions of
the exposition. Some interior views
of the British Columbia government's
exhibits uud those of the Canadian
Pacifio railway will bc added to the
Day hy day the interest in British
Columbia and western Canada keeps
up, us evidenced by the large numbers
who visit the lecture rooms and spend
< n hour or so seeing the views on the
screen, portraying every phase ol the
resources of the province and of the
west. British Columbia's representatives share the use of this lecture hall
with the Canadian Pacitic railway ol-
ticialB, and the reels ol thc tilm pictures are so alternated and dovetailed together as to make a whole afternoon's entertainment, whAe casual
visitors are not debarred Irom stepping in to see a portion ot the views
presented. It is worth mentioning
that this lecture hall, of which the
province has secured the use, is the
l>est in the entire grounds of thc
Panama-Pacific exposition without exception. Generous space on the main
floors of the Canadian Pacitic railway pavilion has been given to thc
British Columbia exhibits, and dls-
liays of Iruit, canned salmon and
minerals supplement thc pictured representations of the wealth and resources of the province. Many band-
Borae illuminuted views illustrate attractive spots in various parts ot
British Columbia.
The lumbering industry Is most impressively described in reels ot pictures which show the various operations ot cutting down thc huge trees,
logging by donkey engine and other
.methods, a logging railway, etc. One
ol the films gives BOine viewB ol the
Fraser mills, and ol the loading of a
lumber vessel, tbe first curgo which
went by way ot the Panama Canal.
Birch logs, iu the natural state,
I roucht from BritiBh Columbia, form
one of the leading features ot the interior decoration schemes of the
whole pavilion.
The display of bottled fruits of all
varieties grown in British Columbia,
and the tresh fruit display, at present confined to apples, is most el-
iectivily arranged, occupying alUOSt
all the space in one end ol tho building. Pyramids ol canned salmon nre
arranged near the door, while other
•displays ot wcil-known salmon brands
.ire set nt other points.
Thc mineral display trom lending
mines ol British Columbia is shown
ju splendid glass cases, while a collection from Trail smelter shows the
values In gold, silver nnd lead recovered In the process of reducing the
A large space is given to thc collection of stuffed animals, and so excellently nnd effectively has thiB portion been designed tbat it Is well
•worth the spart. There are many tine
specimens in the collection, and the
scene built to n present a mountain
glon bIiows them ofl well. Much inter-
vet is arouse.I by this exhibit, and
mnny comments are mnde on the
monster si/e nt the grizzlies and other bears. A number of mounted
bends, magnificent specimens, , arc
bung on the walls above.
Electric lighting Is freely used ln
heightening the effects in various lea-
turcs ol the exhibits, and thft entire
wall spare in the lecture ball is ,i
series of illuminations showing western and mountain scenes, also forest
views, fruit and farm scunies. while
■ nany grnln and grass exhibits are
mounted and similarly lighted.
Soisqua Man Was Shot
in Self-Defence
On Saturday night last a shooting
atfray took place at Sicamous Junction which resulted in the death ot
Mike Ohvo, a Flnlander, who haB a
homestead between SiAsquu and
It appears, says the Salmon Arm
Observer, that Ohvo and a compatriot of his were riding on the brake-
beams of the dining car attached to
tha west bound truin. On the arrival
of that train at thc Junction tbe
brakesmen notified Constable*; Greenwood of the provincial police, ol the
two men being under the dining car. j
Constable Greenwood thereupon in- '
formed Constable Huntington of the
Canadian Pacific railway of this tact,
and a search was made.
Upon the men being discovered, Con-
t-table Huntington called upon them
to come out towards him but instead
of doing so, they got out on the op- '
1 osite side of the train and Mike was
promptly arrested by Constable
Greenwood. The other man, Being
Mike in the hands of the constable,
immediately ran westward as fust as
he could and is still at large. Con- I
stable Greenwood called upon him to
Btop but as this wns of no avail be
fired a warning shot into the air. Im- '
mediately after thiB Mike succeeded in
getting away from the constable. He
was also called upon to stop, hut instead of doing so turned half rcund
and in a stooping position shot at
Constable Greenwood with a targe
38 calibre Colt (which he had Strapped in front of him) but the bullet
however, missed its mark. In self defence Constable Greenwood at once
fired at Mike and shot  him  dead.
On first viewing the body Constable ]
Greenwood thought he had captured
one of the thugs who ki'.led policeman Newington in Vane mver a few
days ago but on closer examination
he enme to the conclusion that Mike
Ohvo was thc man who shot at him
about a year ago. Besides the large
revolver there was tound upon the
person of thc deceased two loaded
clips and enough provisions to lust a
man two days.
The R.M.R. stationed at Sicamous
Junction were placed to guard both
c\its and a close search was mndfl of
the yards to find the other man but
no trace of him could be found. The
only description ol him which, so tar.
can be furnished is that he is tall and
at thc time was wearing a grey suit
and soft felt hat. Inspector Winn of
the provincial police and Chief Constable Fernie oi Kamloops were soon
on the ground as also was Dr. A.K.
CUinolly ol Salmon Arm, the coroner
for thc diRtrict.
At the inquest, which was held on
Monday, the jury brought in the following verdict: "That Mike Ohvo met
his death by a shot from the revolver
of Constahle Grsenwood acting in
self defence. We arc nevertheless ot
the opinion that Constable Greenwood was perhaps a little hasty in '
tiring his first shot. He had hold of
the said Mike Ohvo and it does not
appear to have been essential that
the man who was. running away
should have been caught. We would
like to add the idea that it would be
in the interests ol justice and greatly assist the police if tradesmen
would write the names of purchaser.'
on their bills of goods when making
out the same."
Th s latter recommendation was
brought about by the fact that the
deceased had in his pocket a bill of
the Safe Limited of Salmon Arm, but
his name was not written thereon. It
should be further stated that there
were two gun wounds rn the lezs of
thc deceased and it is understood
that he was secretary ol a socialist
crgnniz.ition, R.W. Bruhn, of Salmon
Arm was one of the persons who
identified the body as being that of
Mike Ohvo. The bo.'v was taken to
the indertaklmr DeW'nr* o' Messrs.
Ruth, Warren &. Carroll, Ltd., Salmon  Arm. and bnr'ed on Tuesday.
New   Customs   Regulation —
Aimed at Marketing of
Chinese Eggs
Hon. Martin Bnrrell, minister ol
agriculture, has telegraphed to the
provincial department of agriculture
that a customs regulation will immediately go into force requiring tbe
marking of country of origin on
packages containing eggs.
I This notification means that the
persistent el'.orts ot the Provincial
Poultry association and its '.Vi local
affiliations, demanding an Egg Marks
act, has been partly . successful and
the regulation passed is expected to
I l.e of great assistance to the growing
industry of egg production in this
The legislation sought was primarily directed agninst thc marketing ot
Chinese eggs as province.1, fresh eggs
and the regulation will have tho el-
lect not only ot preventing eggs trom
the Orient being loistcd on the public
as the product ol British Columbia,
but, in the ^opinion of poultry men
and egg-dealers, practically will cut
ofl all importations of Chinese eggs
.into this province.
Chinese eggs by the million have
leen brought to the Pacific coast,
and this has led to a very strong
agitation on the part of poultrymen
all the way down the coast to California. It is declared that while in
jirevious years vcry considerable
quantities ha.e been imported here
the egg supplies of the coast cities
this year have been almost mainl) the
result of local production.
There has been a very considerable
increase in production and although
a great many of thc poultry keepers
ieduced their Hocks because of the
high price of feed and the low market
prices it does not seem to have had
much elfect until perhaps recently
when some shipments of eggs have
been received from Alberta. But in
tbe past the province relied to quite
a large extent on supplies from California, Oregon and Washington, and
they too will have to face the regulation calling tor the indication of the
country of origin so that they will
not have much success in inducing thc
consumers in British Columbia to re
gard their eggs as "strictly new
With its mild climate the lower
mainland is unexcelled as an egg-
producing country, and in the last
two or three years especially egg production has increased tremendously.
Many people have taken advantage ol
the low prices for fresh eggs to preserve them iu large quantities,
quantities are reported to have
into cold storage.

Twenty nine yars ago I began

balance over another year. They continued to accommodate me until I
was nble to buy a forty-acre piece of
my own.
"As soon ns I owned theBe few

Bending me catalogues, and gradually I began sending my loose change
to them, letting my accounts stand

country towin supported a librnry,
high school, nand, ball team, nnd we
had big celebrations every year.
"A farm near a 1'ivc town soon

"tnrndually our merchants lessened
their stock ol goodB—for lack of patronage. FinaWy wc began to realize
that when we needed a bolt quickly
for machinery, or clothing for sickness or death, wc had to wait and
send away for it, which wasn't so
pleasant. One by one our merchants
moved to places where they were appreciated, and men of Icsb energy
moved ln. Gradually our town bas
gone down; our business houses are
"tacky" In nppearance, a number nre

(The Manchester Guardian)
A remarkable article on Britain appears In the Swiss paper 'La Ke-
maine Litteruire.' It describes ihis
nation as not free from stains, sometimes slnuing, sometimes blundering,
Lut displaying in thc last hundred
years an ellort 'of striking nn r.il
beauty'—a striving to repair v.rougB
and realize justice. This appreciation
ol the moral effort is the welgh'.ler
because the article begins with u milliard sayingB:—
Are we to cull England In 1911 per
t'ulious Albion, or loyal Albion'' The
second title, of course, is tbe right
one .it   the  present duy.
Evidently Great Uritniu was at one
time drunk with the pride .if mpar-
lallsm, Just as Germany is today.
She, too, hns had ber theoretical i.o
feasors of 'Force, the mother ol
Might,' proclaiming her to l.e 'he
elect among tbe nations, .:> order
that she might realize this .iiiiui'i.iu
her political action was for a long
time tortuous, dUhoyal, and some-
tlmC8 brutal iii its use 01 force. ViltD-
out going bao'.i to the abominable
cruelties which she committed in ll.e
colonial wars of the eighteenth cen
t in y one might recall the facts iimt
i, year after the Signature eji the
1'i-j Ce of Amiens In UKNl, without
n.iiting for a declaration of war und
without the shadow ol a pretext, she
seized all the French ships which happened to be In English ports, and
thus committed in times of peaCl an
net of absolute piracy. She has
odiously persecuted Ireland, and her
list war with the Transvaal was nothing less 11 an an assault on public
mor lis.
AH 'his just!bes to a certain extent tbe title of perfidious Albion
which used to bt   ipplied to England,
Imes  she  di serve  it.  still   today,      as
i.er enemb b declare?
The Righting of Wrongs.
Let us note tirst if all that if one
is going to drag up the past in order
to lind arguments to apply to events
u1 in,lay. .,11 the nations in Europe
nre in more or less the same boat.
It would l.i childish, for instance, to
apply this principle and maintain
that Prance at the present moment is
., detestable people simply because
Louis the Fourteenth persecuted Protestants in an abominable fashion,
• nd because the Jacobins were responsible for the Terror. In the same
way it would be absurd to reproach
>Sngland with her past, because she is
precisely one of those nations which
i im the courage to recognize their
mistakes and to work hard to repair
them It Is true thnt she treated thc
French colonies on the St. Lawrence
very badly, but today the Dominion
of Canada Is I ne of the freest of English  cotonles;   Great   Britain  has   ty
rannized for a long time in Ireland,
but she has just granted Home Rule;
England was quite in the wrong in
wishing to secure tbe Transvaal, but
after heating the Boers she is giving
them the most complete autonomy.
lf one studies the history of England in the nineteenth century impartially one will lind proof of a
perpetual ellort towards suppressing
her baser passions in the past in order to be able to arrive at a realization of justice. This ellort on England's part, which is one of striking
moral beauty, is to be noticed in her
domestlo history no less than in her
colonial, In W.X she was the tirst to
i bolish slavery in her colonies; previous to this, in MU2 she gave the
political franchise to the Catholics,
who up to then had been kept without it. Then in 1864 she extended it
(.0 the .lews; in lSI',1—and this in a
fact unique Ln history—she restored
wil bout any kind of compulsion the
Ionian Islands to Greece, Finally, on
lhe 1st July, 1SD0, s'ie voluntarily
ceded the island ol Heligoland to
The  Most   Just of Dominations.
Kngland bas BO far not deprived a
Flngle nation of its language or its
religion. Wherever she rules jltutiee
and  liberty  rule too,      To the I'l'iiivn
i ossessionB which do not yet possess
lhe autonomy of the regular colonies
she has brought mora, as we.i us
material progress. In this way, while
having the Hindoos their Various religions, languages customs, and local
organizations, the English have regenerated India; in Egypt they have
increased the r.thes of tbe country
tenfold, they have abolished com-
I ulsory labor and raised the status of
the natives. Is not all tnis undeniable
I roof of the merits of England as u
nation? Moreover, at the actual moment the same shouts of loyalty are
rising from -all the British colonies in
the ears of the mother-country, and
help is coining to her from all sides
in tine, form of subsidies and soldiers.
Would this be possible if Great Britain were still the perfidious Albion
of s centtii y ago?
Heine may with reason, perhaps,
bave said of other days that Eng-
land's conscience was never in conflict with her ideas; today she can be
said to be trying so far as possible
to reconcile her interests witb her
conscience, In th:s immense empire
where the sun never sets justice does
not set either, and only sutlers very
partial and temporary eclipses. To
what great and dominant country
(ould one render the same testimony?
The  Uritish Frame of Mii.d.
The writer of the article goes on to
suggest tbat this mental und moral
change (contrasting so stron.ly with
the corresponding change that has
taken place in Germany) is due partly to thc religious revival ol the
nineteenth century; partly to the
influence of the French  Revolution on
'political and moral ideas, as illustrated in Mill and Spencer; and
partly to the humanitarian influence
of the Socialists. He then proceeds:—
Moral energy moving entirely in the
direction of perfecting political life
combined with the persistent desire to
bring more liberty and more justice
to subject races is the primary feature which characterises British mentality. England is imperialist, of
course, but her imperialism today is
no longer, as it. once wns, the brutal
desire to crush the feeble, but rather
the noble ambition of raising them
to her own level, whilst respecting
their own moral standards. This
trait, I think, is sufficient to characterise the soul of the English nation. As to her other qualities and
defects, they arc so well known that
it is almost useless to recall them.
The Angio-Saxon Is recognized for being practical and enterprising, patient
bold, conscientious, and loyal, with
a Blight touch ol cant which some
times modules his frankness. lf be
easily (alls into snobbishness, he has
a high standard of morality In spite
Of his pride and his intermittent tits
of open egoism. He wants to be re
spected himself, but he Knows bow to
respect others.
I'he 'Bulldog's Grip.'
The politienns in power at this mo
ment be'leve also In respecting trent-
iif. ('.in they be reproached for having clear consciences and holding this
illusion? Besides, the whole of Eng
lund is responsible to the same extent :is they are. Now they have no
more illusions; cold resolution has
taken their place. Elisee Reclus, who
has wi i ten a remarkable book on
the United Kingdom, after having cx-
pre'sed his admiration for the line
qualities of the English, adds;—'The
Englishman has something of the
1 ulldog in him—the dog of his own
breeding which doesn't loBe its hold

pieces than let go.'
enemies that they nre not only
thoroughly united but that they are
enduring with what fortitude they
possess the rigid military enforcements that are placed upon them for
the conservation both of food and
material. Every man, woman and
child, from the Kaiser down, has
been put on rations. The idea Ib
three-fold, to guard against any possible emergencies, to mislead the foe
into over-confidence and by thoroughness to bring such pressure to bear us
will hasten the final decision. Britain
is pursuing the same course. She has
not. yet found it necessary to place
ier population Individually on short,
i ations, but she has found it, desirable
to take over munition factories in
order to ensure sujiplies thnt mean
i ither life or death to thc nation.
Meantime, Germany by cowardly
submarine assassination is endeavoring to starve her people and criple
her resources.
With such a state ol affairs existent,
it is hardly necessary to explain to
stay at-home Canadians how best
they can fulfill tbeir manifest duty
and show the burden-bearers bow
completely they possess their sym
pathy. But the bugle blast has its
rallying power in peace as in war. To
all the people, nnd to farmers, breeders and settlers in particular, the
patriotism and production movement that is in progress is blowing
its bugle, or, in other words, carrying its message. Its object ls to
arouse all and sundry to the part
they are called on to play. That
part does not ol necessity moan hard-
(r work  nor incrensed  acreugc;      but
it does imply the exorcise of every
faculty in attention and vigilance, It
does Imply in order td secure Increased and Improved production, by
which alone cultivators of ths soil
ran contribute t iwards the credit of
the country and empire, the greatest
rare in the selection of seed, in the
breeding of live-stock and ln economy
of the land.

Great Britain is fnced not alone hy

Is cotton wanted as well as     linen?
That is the tiuery over the telephone
asked many times of members of   the
1 Red   Cross     society.   The   reply is,
"yes,"  every    bit     of linen,  cotton,
